Preview Art on a Wall App?

[I've spent a few hours searching and can't find anything]

I'm building out my ecommerce art store selling prints and want the ability to dynamically show a preview of the print on various walls. 

Every online art retailer does this, but I cannot find the proper app in shopify to do so. Maybe I'm searching the wrong terms. 

Any ideas? 

Thanks!

Many stores that do something like that have custom solutions and that would be my way of approaching this. You can code something in JavaScript. Have few wall images and overlay the product images over those.

I would use the <canvas> element: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Canvas_API. This will allow you to do complex things like color correction, perspective, scaling.

You could set some areas defined by X, Y coordinates and a Width and Height. On top of those ares display the product image.

Can be a nice product visualization.

Hello Artbotic,

Great question! If I understand correctly you are wishing for these images to show on the product page itself. Do you have an example website to share? Just to be sure I am on the same page as you.

I had a look around for apps that have this functionality, there are many image rotation/slideshow apps that can be displayed on pages but I have a feeling these are not what you are looking for. I did find this interesting app called i-vu that allows your customers to upload their own background, a different idea for you.  :)

Certainly your request is something that can be coded into your shops HTML either by hiring an Expert or if you are familiar with coding I found this post that might get the job done.

Feel free to reply to my post and let me know a little more of what you have in mind and I am more than happy to help you dig out any options that might be available.

 

Cheers,

Jen

Thanks for the thoughtful reply - really impressive! 

 

Here are a few examples:

https://www.curioos.com/product/Print/distant-planet-v2 ;

http://www.postergully.com/collections/notebook/products/farhan-aktar-watercolor-painting-notebook-a...

 

Basically they have a few backgrounds uploaded like Mircea mentioned and then they can put whatever image they want within the frame/notebook/whatever. 

 

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply and search!

Hey there, are you still looking for an app like this? I've been considering building an app that superimposes product pics (ie art, painting) on top of an admin-defined set of photos, such as a couch with a blank wall.

I totally understand the need here, let me know if you're still wanting a solution.

Cheers,
